 To give his son a second chance at life, Zeus secretly gave the heart to his latest mortal love, Semele, princess of <apdx ref="​open:​settings:​6d6hellenic:​apdx:​thebes">​Thebes</​apdx>​. Eating the heart, she became pregnant and gave birth to a reformed Dionysus. Hera discovered the child had survived, so she disguised herself as a nurse and infiltrated Semele'​s household. After gaining the princess'​ trust she sowed seeds of doubt that her lover was Zeus. Desperate to know the truth, Semele called on Zeus to honour his sworn <apdx ref="​open:​settings:​6d6hellenic:​apdx:​oath">​oath</​apdx>​ to obey her wishes and demanded he show his divinity. Forced by the oath Zeus appeared but the power of his form overwhelmed Semele and killed her. To give his son a second chance at life, Zeus secretly gave the heart to his latest mortal love, Semele, princess of <apdx ref="​open:​settings:​6d6hellenic:​apdx:​thebes">​Thebes</​apdx>​.

-Semele'​s death left Dionysus vulnerable, but he was saved from Hera's anger by Demeter. She smuggled the baby away from Thebes and asked <​apdx ​reg="​open:​settings:​6d6hellenic:​apdx:​hermes">​Hermes</​apdx>​ to take him far east to Mount Nysa. Beyond even the reach of Hera's spies, the rain nymphs raised the child on milk and nectar. On Mount Nysa Dionysus discovered how to cultivate the vine and create wine from its fruits. As an adult he took this knowledge and shared it with mortals as he travelled the far east holding celebrations and festivals. During these travels he learned foreign mannerisms which have stayed with him throughout his life.+Semele'​s death left Dionysus vulnerable, but he was saved from Hera's anger by Demeter.
